Phoenix: We’ll Help You Pimp Your Ride, Starting with the Wheels
There are three ways you can do this:
A technique specifically for metals that sprays a thin layer of powder onto the wheel’s surface. That powder is baked on to achieve a uniform durable finish. This technique is used to repair dings and scratches or to match your wheel’s existing color.
Pin-striping wheel details and edges, and brake caliper coating are two ways to add unique pops of color to your wheels. Or color the whole wheel into a custom color you select here at Express Color Coating/Phoenix Rim Repair.
Common wheel finishes are chrome, machine polished and powder color-coated wheels. Each gives your vehicle a distinct look to set it apart from the rest. Don’t be basic!
Some prefer to refine and refinish their original wheels, while others ramp up their vehicle personality and presence on the road by adding bold colors to turn heads.
Know Before You Go
First, know the size of your wheel because it’s diameter needs to match your tires. You can find that on your tire. You’ll also want to know your wheel’s offset, or the distance between the hub mounting surface to its center line. If the new wheel has a different offset from what you’re using now, the tires may rub on the inside or outside, eventually causing tire failure.
Wheels also come in a variety of materials. For example, alloy wheels are lighter than steel wheels, which will give you speed and also reduce the heat the brake system endures.
